Deja Brew

Hee hee! I love this sentiment. And, since it was on a clear stamp, it was easy to manipulate to make curves in the text. Isn't that fun? From the paper-pieced cup to the distressed background, this card makes me happy.

Sure is fun to be part of the 2018 Spring/Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!

Have an awesome day!

Thanks a Latte (iced latte, that is...)

Thanks a Latte! (iced latte, that is!) Did a bit of layering, fussy cutting, paper piecing and distress inking with the Stamps of Life and FSJ stamps. Good times. And, it's an angle card too. :)
Here's a side view of the angle. Isn't that fun!

And, here's a sweet lemonade card to brighten someone's day. Love how the lemon slice is perched on the edge of the glass, don't you? A little torn paper and a little shimmer pen (that you can't see), makes fun finishes.

It's another happy day on the Spring/Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop. :)

Primitive Coffee Card

I decided to go a totally different direction with this card for the Spring/Summer Coffee Lover's blog hop. Have you seen the primitive style? It's not a style I normally gravitate to and yet sometimes the look is oddly compelling. So, here's an experiment with that style. What do you think?
Distress oxide inks, distress crayons and distress markers all played into the grungy background and window element.

It's fun to play with different styles to push the creative growth.

I hope you'll check out the hop and play along.
